There are several physical differences Most notable is the different orientations of the "Nexus" logo. The 2013 model drops the dimpled texture on the back. The 2013 model also has a camera on the back, which the 2012 model lacks. The 2013 model has a notification LED on the front, which the 2012 model lacks. The 2013 model has a speaker grille on the top ...

Just had the same issue. Go to Settings > Security > Install from storage. Locate your certificate file and install it. Edit: If instead of Install from storage preference you have Install from SD card (this is what being displayed when you use API-19 emulator for example), then one extra step required. Because in this case the activity shows only Recent ...

In my case the Android File Transfer App made my whole Macbook touch input freeze, so I had to find a away around this problem. The solution from this page worked: https://cooltrainer.org/taming-android-file-transfer-on-mac-os-x/ Kill all Android File Transfer (AFT) processes using Activity Monitor Remove AFT from your login items Remove the agent with the ...

What fixed it for me was clicking on the "Connected as a media device" up at the top left corner, de-selecting Media Device (MTP) and then checking Camera (PTP). This essentially made it show up as a different kind of USB device with different options and allowed the process to work perfectly.

The Virtual Tablet app is free on the Google Play Store. It works with some flaws but overall good. See the developers site for more information

Goal If you have the OTA image downloaded and, as in my case, ended up without success you should be able to adb sideload <filename> it still manually (video here). Problem/Error ... unfortunately the OTA update via adb sideload errors out with: Finding update package... Opening update package... Verifying update package... Installing update... ...

OTA updates that come directly from Google (such as Nexus devices) are rolled out in waves. An excerpt from Dan Morill's comment states that, specifically: Rollouts are conducted in phases. Typically they start at 1% of devices for around 24 - 48 hours; we watch the return rates and resulting device checkins and error reports (if any), and make sure nothing ...

These /data-related errors are likely because TWRP can't decrypt the current /data partition. This often happens with stock ROMs, since TWRP is only made to handle the encryption method of AOSP. To work around it, in TWRP, choose Wipe - Format Data. This will wipe all data from the device, but at the same time remove encryption and allow you to start off ...

Another caveat: when installing a certificate via Settings > Security > Install from storage on my Nexus 7, Android 5.0.2 I had to navigate to the file via Internal Storage: Trying to select the file via the shortcut to Downloads did not work.

According to Ifixit's teardown, the Nexus 7 2013 uses the Qualcomm 8064 Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC. Qualcomm's specs show that SoC uses their IZat Gen8A GNSS chipset, which according to their overview does include GLONASS support, though this doesn't necessarily mean GLONASS support is actually active and available in software. A simple means to test whether ...

They are stored in /mnt/shell/emulated/ I've just created a restricted profile and it created a new folder in there with the name "10", the main admin users folder is "0". You should be able to copy the files into the relevant place within these folders to get mine craft to pick them up. (This was done on the 2012 Nexus 7 but I don't think it will be any ...

The problem is that you're missing the adb recovery driver. You might consider trying Koush's universal USB driver installer -- it solved this very problem by installing the missing drivers.

Apparently only the tablet owner (first user created) has access to developer settings. I was using another user. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14223748/android-4-2-developer-settings-still-unavailable

I assume you're referring to the 2012 version of the Nexus 7? Although the hardware is capable of supporting Bluetooth LE (as suggested by the link in your question), Google never certified it as such and so the stock ROM does not support it. There is an answer to a similar question on stackoverflow which appears to suggest that CyanogenMod (and maybe other ...

I had the exact same wish as you, and I eventually found a solution I was happy with. It does not solve it in 100% the way you had envisioned, but let me see if it helps you. At first I was thinking to use the Android device as a remote desktop control (for example, via TeamViewer of Chrome Remote Deksktop) for my computer, and then open drawing software on ...

Go into your device Setting--> Apps--> All (tab)--> Open 'Motorola Update Services' & Disable it! If 'Disable' Option is not available in your device then you will have to root your device and then install SD Maid app, And grant that application root permission so that you can freeze system apps. And I think so 2nd method will work 100%.

I had the same problem because I had enabled "Sync last 30 days" for the All Mail folder in account settings → "Manage labels". Apparently there is some bug which makes it sync everything but the last 30 days? I disabled the sync for that folder and refreshed it a few times until went blank and actually reloaded all mail, including today's. When I re-...

If you've read around, then you'll already have read that the idea of "free RAM" is a bit of a nonsense for Android. PC operating systems take an app out of RAM as soon as you quit it, which leaves empty space that the PC probably has to spend power on filling again afterwards - probably with the same app next time you run it. Android tries to avoid this ...

The definite answer is yes. I received my Nexus 7 (2013) a few weeks ago and today went outside to catch a few satellites. I'm using GPS Status & Toolbox whose user guide states: The sky grid (G) shows the GPS satellites above you as the receiver in the phone detects them. GPS satellites (with IDs 1-32) are represented by small circles while ...

Looking at a teardown of the new Nexus 7, it looks to be near the center again (here you can see in the photo the NFC is under the inductive charging). iFixit did a pretty good teardown of it here which may give you more detail.

From Google Support: If you're using a Nexus 7 and touching its back to another device, make sure the other device is near the "u" in "nexus" to successfully beam content. "Beam" in this quote is referring to Android Beam, Android's name for NFC content transfer.

It seems to be a known "feature" if you use Kaspersky Internet Security: http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?s=8ffe1c0b8684d5bd3d1353f0d074f528&showtopic=260035 However, as you can see in the link above, it comes with a few issues. Disabling the 'web protection' component seems to do the trick.

Try disabling the notification then restart your tablet and see if it reappears: Go to Settings > Application Manager > All > Google Services Framework and then uncheck "Show notifications". Are you rooted? If so, and if disabling the notification doesn't work, try freezing or uninstalling the update apk: Use Root Explorer or ES Explorer and ...

No, you don't need anything unique. While it comes with something specific - it can charge off a USB in your computer (or the wall outlet -> USB). (Source: I have the 2012 one) Sounds like you have other issues such as: Bad/Obstructed USB header - Visually check the USB on your Nexus for physical damage or blocks (dust, debris, lint, etc) Bad USB cable - ...

I just submitted a bug report to Android issue tracker. Maybe we'll receive some feedback from developers: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=62375

Yes, it is possible. One of the advantages of rooting is the ability to control the operating system that resides on your phone. With that control, you can change the version of Android. There are two ways to go about doing this: Flash the stock image https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images Install a custom ROM. If you know what an operating ...

Are you sure you have the google-experience launcher? The one that comeswith the Nexus 5 and has integrated Google Now on the leftmost screen? It does not come with the Nexus 7 update, it is Nexus 5 exclusive. You CAN sideload it, but since you mention "Five Homescreens" you don't have it. You have the stock launcher. If you are using the Nexus 7 'stock' ...
